There are some exciting opportunities for students in 2021!

Otago are offering a number of extension and enrichment programmes this year including both residential and non-residential opportunities.

In Term 1 and 2 there is the Year 10 option for Making Sense of the Marine World (closing date for applications 17th March). For Year 11 and 12 there is the Depp Thought Expedition (closing date for applications 25th May).

In terms 3 and 4 there are programmes for Year 9 to Year 12 Māori students. There is also a Year 9 and 10 Pasifica programme (deadline 24th March).

There are also opportunities for our Year 7 and 8 students later in the year.

Places are limited and students need to apply as well as have supporting applications from teachers. If you are interested there is more information available on the Otago Marine Studies page and you can also contact
